THE Ondo State Governorship Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo state, Chief Olusola Oke, has said that his administration would provide social welfare package for aged citizens in the state, if voted into power in the forthcoming election.

He said this at an interactive session with a group of elderly citizens of the state, who visited him at the Olusola Oke/ Saka Lawal Campaign Organisation headquarters in Akure.

Oke said the social welfare package, which according to him would be a continuation of the PDP programme would be improved on in line with the present economic situation in the country.

The former PDP national legal adviser said the aged deserved good living condition and that it was the part of the PDP programme to make provision that would assist them.

He said the party would, in addition to the welfare package, consider them in the overall policy framework of the government, if elected.

His words: “Part of the ways we are going to relief the people is by bringing government schools to all the nook and crannies of the 18 local government areas of Ondo State like we have done before.

“It is the prerogative of a child in Tekule, Ajowa, Oke Agunla and other villages to go to school.

We will not deprive them by allocating over a billion of naira to build two schools while other communities suffer.

We have started it and we will complete it because we believe in an Ondo State where all the 18 local government areas will have their share of the government structures across the state. This is how to spread development and achieve corporate growth in the state.”
